Welcome to Goulburn Physiotherapy Centre
At Goulburn Physiotherapy Centre, your successful recovery is our mission
We ensure that your treatment, from acute injury management through to rehabilitation, is supported by the latest clinical evidence, incorporates the use of the most up to date hands on therapy and clinical technology and is delivered by a caring team of physiotherapists, a massage therapist and wonderful support staff.
We appreciate that you have several choices when choosing a local physiotherapist.
When you come to see us, our time is spent with YOU. We will discuss YOUR health concerns and provide you with an individualised treatment to help manage your pain, assist your recovery and optimise your health.
Your treatment will take place in our purpose built clinic with rooms designed to maintain your privacy, an onsite gym to assist you in your recovery as well as access to a hydrotherapy pool.
Everything you need to complete your treatment can be provided by our caring and professional team.
We know that in our busy lives, finding the time for treatment can be hard. So we have extended opening hours during the week, so that you can have the option of before or after work appointments, as well as lunch time and day time appointments.
We also understand that there are times when you may injure yourself unexpectedly and that’s why we offer SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS if you call us before 9am.
There is no need to see a Doctor before you see us (unless you are under a compensation scheme) so you can save time and money by using us as a first point of contact for injury and pain management.
We know how important access to health services is and that is why we are conveniently located in the CBD, we have ample car parking and ramped access at the rear and we also provide a clinic in Crookwell 2 days per week.
